Title Sky Light No. 0739
Category Nov 2014 BW Bronze
Location Katy, TX
Reason For Making the Image I enjoy taking handheld photos of municipal fireworks and seeing the amazingly different images as a result. In this case I went a step further than usual inverting the image in photoshop and then converting to black & white. This last step is based on a comment I received during a portfolio review.

Laszlo Perlaky – Reeds of Boquillas

Title Reeds of Boqullas
Category Nov 2014 Gold BW
Location Boquillas, Big Bend NP, Texas
Reason For Making the Image I visited this area several times before and we enjoyed the play of light there many times. The light turns very special during sunset at this area, because the Sun is setting behind the Chisos Mountain in May and during that moment, some special reflection can drop extra glowing light to the foreground reeds of the Rio Grande swamp at Boquillas. The lifespan of the glow is very short and always different, so I was there many times, set up my camera and waited for the moment.
Camera Linhoff Master Technika, 4×5
Lens Schneider Apo-Symmar 210 mm
f-stop f/22
Shutter Speed 1/2
